LibriVox recording of A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen. Read in English by Phil Chenevert Published in 1879, this play was a bombshell, exposing the tragic hypocrisy of Victorian middle class marriage. The play is significant for the way it deals with the fate of a married woman, who at the time in Norway lacked reasonable opportunities for self-fulfillment in a male-dominated world. - A wife was almost literally a bird in a cage for display by the husband. Note that this is a solo reading of the entire play by one person. We have an excellent dramatic reading of this play in our catalog also if a more traditional performance is more to your taste.)
